Yes, lossless is fine, though I'd recommend you upload MP3s if you want the majority of people to be able to listen to it (the Open Source Audio crowd is not as familiar with lossless encoding formats as the LMA community).

Well... the system isn't very smart right now. What'll happen is the ZIP file will contain both. Open Source Audio pages are cool though, because there is a list of all downloadable tracks right on the details page. Also, the streaming option will work (it'll exclude the SHNs or FLACs).

So in short: do whatever you feel like doing. Very few people will bother with the lossless files, but you can have them up there for archival purposes if you like.

Erich, is this Id, Petroglyph, etc. that you're talking about? I downloaded mp3 copies when I first got into Tim/trading, but I haven't been able to get SHN since the ftp went down. If that's what you end up uploading, please consider uploading the lossless files. Thanks.

yes, and yes (Ive got plans to try to get some out of print stuff on here too, theyre safe to trade). Im going to upload lossless for now, and just point people to the new tim ftp if they want MP3s.

thanks again Jon
